Upward Potential

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something.
– Neil Gaiman

Isn’t it beautiful that we resolve to change in the new year? That we can and do consciously choose to be different in ways we determine to be better?

This is our culture. We believe in ourselves. We believe in reaching beyond where we are. This is why we emigrate towards opportunity and set goals and go back to school.

I love this about us. Our propensity for growth. The upward potential of human nature. The expansion of the universe. We sense it, we move into it, we become it.

Dear readers, may 2016 be your best year yet. May all of us catch that rising tide.
